Food Porn at New York's Houston Hall

0

Thursday night in New York City and you want to know where all the cool kids are?  Head downtown to Houston Street, and chances are you’ll hear them before you see them.

Houston Hall is, by Manhattan standards, a ginormous beer hall decked out like a cafeteria from the 1920’s: long communal tables, rustic decor, dim lighting…this vintage vibe is only offset by the huge screens/TVs playing the season’s it sport, and the top 40’s music playing soundtrack to the game.  The Choice A of spots to go to hang with old friends, meet new ones, all while having conversation be completely optional, which, let’s be honest, is kinnndddaa nice after a long week in the office.

Now, I realize most people go to beer gardens for, well, the beer.  And considering they brew at Greenpoint Beer Works, that’s all fine and good.  But you would be doing yourself a great disservice if you go and didn’t order the food…lots of it.

The portions are generous, the picks go splendidly with the beer garden theme, and, get this, it’s a vegetarian’s dream.  Who would have thought?!  All the dishes featured below are veggie friendly and crazy good.  If I lived in the hood I’d be ordering takeout from this place all the time, it’s that kinda good.

I know what you’re thinking: so many options, right?!  Life decisions can be hard, my friends.  If you need a little guidance, I’d go with the fried pickles, fried macaroni and cheese balls, and pretzel with warm cheese.  Ya know, cause 2/3′s of the options with the word “fried” in it isn’t bad.  Plus, they’re insanely good…between my dinner date and I proudly finished every last morsel of those three dishes.

Without any further adieu, let the food porn begin…
